Caring Is Creepy: Have a Seat Ryan Boyle
So is Boyle's recruitment a sign that Greg Davis has "won" the war for the soul of Iowa's offense and the age of the dual-threat quarterback is dawning (or re-dawning; miss you, Brad Banks) at Iowa? Well, maybe. But probably not. (For what it's worth, 247 and Rivals both consider him a pro-style QB, 1300 rushing yards be damned.)
COMPARABLE. Iowa's not exactly a dual-threat QB mecca. Cody Sokol comes to mind watching Boyle's high school game highlights. He'll need to learn to operate under center in Iowa's offense. It wasn't natural for Sokol but he found success somewhere other than Iowa. Boyle is athletic enough to find another position if quarterback doesn't work out.
